I am passionate about sharing my love for the English language with my students. In my teaching career, I have been successful at building a long-lasting rapport with my students and helping them excel in the areas that many find daunting and overwhelming—reading and writing.
I am a graduate of Pace University in New York City with a Bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature (Writing and Literature concentration). I have tutored test prep, including SAT, ACT, and TOEFL tests; phonics; essay editing; American history; ESL; elementary reading and writing; and middle school and high school English. When I’m not tutoring, you can find me reading, listening to music, playing the piano, watching musicals, or playing with my two kids.
